Clippers’ Matt Barnes Suspended


The Clippers regular season opener will be tonight against the Memphis Grizzlies, but forward Matt Barnes won’t be playing. The NBA suspended Barnes for one game after he pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor for resisting ,delaying or obstructing a police officer. The LA Times report :

“Barnes, 32, was arrested in Manhattan Beach in July on suspicion of threatening a public official, a felony. Barnes was arrested after an officer who was aware he had an outstanding warrant for a misdemeanor traffic violation approached him on foot.”

“But the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office chose to file a misdemeanor and it agreed to a deal on the lesser charge.”
